Then taking in proportion to the sizes of the sections to even smaller lists for you. Then picked my top picks from each section. This is after 4+ years of managing a Blockbuster and watching more movies (15,000 titles in my store) than any one person should see and hearing feedback on even more than i wanted so without adu. . ..
